BJ Wane - Mastering Her Fear

Mastering Her Fear

He wouldn’t walk away from her again,
but he would get the truth out of her.
 One way or another.

I'm happy to have BJ Wane back at the Reading Room today. I think you're going to like this one.

Julie Martin pulled on Jackson Davenport’s protective urges the minute he stepped outside and saw her go flying off her swing to land in a heap of gangly arms and legs then come up smiling. When he discovered how her parents pressed her into competing in beauty pageants for their own selfish gratification, he took it upon himself to provide her with the friendship the little girl craved. Years later, just when his adult feelings – and body – began to want more from the beautiful young woman she’d grown up to be, Julie moved away to take the modeling world by storm. Jackson’s first encounter with the changes in her personality broke his heart and he severed all ties with her.

Six years later, Julie returns to Jackson a broken woman, unable to cope with the nightmare that changed her life forever. When he discovers her penchant for cutting herself to deal with the fear, he shows her a new side of him she’s never seen before, and a new way to get through the darkness that continues to plague her.

Even though Julie embraces Jackson’s dominant sexuality and the way his painful ministrations work much better at calming her fears, the truth of what happened the night her two friends were murdered stands between them. Will she be able to set aside her guilt to tell him the entire truth, or will she once again lose the only person who can complete her?

Publisher’s Note: This book is intended for adults only. It contains elements of power exchange and explicit scenes. While it is the third title in the Miami Masters series, it can be enjoyed as a standalone.

The sudden glare of flashbulbs nearly blinded Jackson as they stepped outside, but it was the immediate change in Julie’s demeanor that snared his attention.  Gone was the vain, brittle woman he’d just spent an uncomfortable dinner with and in her place preened a gushing, simpering celebrity putting on airs for the tabloids.  Bitterness that rivaled what he’d felt when Federal agents invaded his home and arrested his parents for drug dealing and complicity in a child’s death rolled through him.  It wasn’t fair to have his illusions ripped out from under him twice in a lifetime.  
Needing to get away, Jackson stepped away from her and hailed the next cab then gave her a quick hug as soon as the reporters left.  “Good seeing you again, Julie.”  He kissed her forehead and turned, ignoring her as she called after him in a puzzled voice.
But as he reached for the handle of the taxi, Jackson held up a finger, bidding him to wait. Spinning back around, he caught a glimpse of confused insecurity on Julie’s face before she masked it behind the fa├žade he’d been staring at all night as he strode over to her.  Yanking her against him, he held her head immobile by cupping her nape.  Swooping down, he kissed her, fast and hard, refusing to give in to the temptation to linger, to savor, to take more.  Her low moan of instant surrender threatened his resolve to walk away, but he forced himself to remember the past hour, the worst he’d spent in her company.  Pulling back with a sigh of regret and heavy ache for all he had lost, he drank in her face one last time.  “Have a good life, Julie.”  Ignoring her astonishment and the arousal in those amethyst eyes, he hopped in the cab and didn’t glance back.

I live in the Midwest with my husband and our two dogs.  I love dogs, enjoy spending time with my daughter, babysitting dogs and kids, reading and working puzzles.  We have traveled extensively throughout the states, Canada and just once overseas, but I now much prefer being homebody.  I worked for a while writing articles for a local magazine but soon found my interest in writing for myself peaking.  My first book was strictly spanking erotica, but I slowly evolved to writing erotic spanking romance with a touch of suspense.  My favorite genre to read is suspense.

Saturday Spankings - Last Dance

Thanks for coming by for another Saturday Spanking, a blog hop where you can read snippets from many different authors out here. I’m taking my snippet today from Cassie’s Life, my latest in the Cassie’s Space Series.
Last week Cassie and the girls were at a very interesting ‘dance hall’ hearing all about the regulars. You can read that here. A few more regulars showed up – as Cassie described them… The lady did indeed look as though she had once been a prom queen, probably around the mid 1960’s. Evidently she felt that was her peak look and her hair was in a somewhat modified bee hive style. She had a slim figure and was dressed quite stylishly for the hardware. She swept in like she owned the place and judging from the greetings she received, she most likely did.
The gentleman with her was interesting in his own right. He was a tall well-built man, quite good looking. He was wearing jeans, a crisply ironed black shirt and a black cowboy hat. When he turned to speak to someone we saw he had a long white ponytail. As he looked back our way he spotted our row and his eyes lit up and he have us all a big smile.
The prom queen noticed us too and was defiantly not happy. She actually took the man’s face in her hand and turned it back to her. With two fingers, she pointed to his eyes, then back to herself. Letting him know in no uncertain terms where he was supposed to be looking.
But during the evening he did manage to dance with both Cassie and Sue, after which our ladies decided to leave…

Heading to our car we’d gone no more than past a couple of stores when we heard a woman behind us loudly saying, “You bitches better be running.” Sue and I both came to a dead stop, then turned around slowly to face the prom queen.
“What did you just say to us?” I inquired in my most menacing voice.
I heard Lily, farther up the street mutter, “Oh, Lord.”
I addressed her once again, “Do we look like we’re running?”
The prom queen seemed startled when we’d turned to confront her. Sue and I headed back toward her, quickly backed up by Annie, Allie and Jenny. Lily was heading our way too and I could still hear her praying. The queen seemed to lose her bluster quickly.
“Y’all just stay away from him, hear? He’s mine,” she told us as she looked around for reinforcements.
“Listen honey, every last one of us has a better man than your ponytailed friend. We didn’t ask him to dance, he asked us. If you don’t like it, put a collar and leash on him the next time you bring him,” I told her.

Cassie’s Life (Book 10)

Ask Cassie about her life on the river and she’ll tell you it’s lovely and peaceful. But while Cassie loves the life she lives, peaceful is not always an accurate description. Whether she’s confronting an armed man who’s in a drunken rage, planning a friend’s wedding or dealing with a ghost in a backwoods lodge, Cassie is going to deal with it the best way she knows how. And peaceful doesn’t always work.
When a mysterious phone call comes for Cassandra Wentworth – Cassie’s past is suddenly back to haunt her in a devastating way. Tom has always said nothing from before the time they met counts, but he didn’t know about this.  Sue, Annie, Allie and Jenny are all willing to help, but will it be enough?
